Thanks! But I'm missing a fix for the DD/DTS passthrough issues on 2015/2016 receivers from Denon and others. Hope this will be addressed soon.

This is still in progress.

Unfortunately it's not a simple fix. Frown

Yay! Looking very much forward to it.

James, maybe you can explain to me what "10s icon while hovering" is?

This is a small 10s (10 second) icon that appears when you hover over the left/right edge of the touchpad without tapping. Like Apple's player, this gives you a hint about what will happen if you tap the edges.

    We've improved the screen where favorites are edited (tap/hold on a favorite in the main menu) to be more intuitive.

    Great news James. Thank you and the entire team for putting in so much work to get the ability to play Divx back in. It is much appreciated.

    WTV (recordings from WMC) will now play, once Apple releases 4.0.3. Thanks James & support team.

    Any chance this gives the ability to hide the "extrafanart" and "extrathumbs" folders generated on a share by Kodi?

    first of all I think you made an awesome product and are doing lots of fine work on the updates.

    But there are still no watched/unwatched icons does this mean by one upgrade a month this will take another 7 months?
    compared to other players the lack of this is what makes infuse inferiour.

    At least give us an indication on when it is coming out.

    Seems like a great (and needed) update - I hadn’t noticed how many xVid files I had until 4.02!

    Now, for the only other real annoying issue I have left… would http://firecore.com/forum/topic/13943 be amongst your fixes?

    My DD/DTS output via HDMI stopped working after I updated to 4.0.2 on my ATV4. Is this related?
    The HDMI is connected to a HDMI to HDMI + audio extractor with the SP/DIF output going to my receiver. Under 4.0.2 with passthru enabled the receive would just play noise.

    The receiver can play DD just fine from Netflix

    Can you check to see if 'Reduce Loud Sounds' is enabled in the Settings > Audio & Video menu? If it is, disable it and passthrough should start working again.

    Good News !

    Thanks Firecore for your work. Infuse is the best player on the Apple TV.

    For thoses who have DTS/Dolby Passthrough problems such as a loud white noise: have you tried to disable HDMI-CEC on all of your devices? For me, it solved the problem.

    I disabled hdmi-CEC on all my devices and after a stand-by/on of the Apple TV, it works very well !

    Great..looking forward to the update! Keep up the good work!!

    When can we expect sorting options, like "recently added" or "by genre"...? Maybe 4.1 as well...? Wink

    Had the same problem, you have to delete the all manually.

    Maybe even recently watched? This would help to pickup a movie or tv show without having to remember what movie it was, especially if you watch a lot.
